  • It’s a great pleasure to welcome our new ambassadors (and please give their intros in the forum a like): (1) Bella from Vietnam, (2) christiancdpetersen, a very active player in MakerDAO and the most recent newcomers (3) Amir and (4) tokenomacs :pray:t2: Looking forward to learning from your experience and background, to gain new thoughts and ideas and working with you together to bring the community to the next level!

Product & Engineering

  • Martin, one of our Co-founders, introduced Anemoy Capital and submitted the POP-submission for the Anemoy Liquid Treasury Fund 1. Great to see another submission to expand Pools on Centrifuge chain after the introduction of the new app!
  • Pool updates: Unfortunately less good news from ConsolFreight, one of our first pools, with the transparent and detailed explanation of what happened. This being said it is important to add that Pools matured over time and due to additional measures (e.g Centrifuge Credit Group, POP-process) the quality of Pools increased significantly. Nonetheless it is crucial for every investor to keep the basic rule “DYOR” in mind.:warning:
    Flowcarbon’s Nature Offset Series 1 has been fully closed! This is a demonstration how on-chain capital can be used in an ecological meaningful way. :clap:
  • Although they are not running a pool on Centrifuge (yet), another quick update from UrbanGate Capital for August :clap:
  • Mark, the facilitator of the Centrifuge Credit Group, gave another insight into the meaningful work his group does and explains How the CCG analyzes prospective pools.

Stay tuned for the next monthly update with definitely more news, governance updates and developments from the ecosystem!
